Adult Residential Care

The Adult Residential Care (ARC) Program is a co-ed residential program. The program serves adult men and women who reside within Hamilton County. The program is composed of a Mental Health Court, Short-Term Rehab and an Intensive Outpatient component.

Mental Health Court

Courts have teamed up with mental health providers in an effort to provide treatment for those with chronic mental illness (in lieu of incarceration) from re-offending repeatedly. The goal of the Mental Health Court is to break that cycle, based on the concept that recovery is important and obtainable. The goal is to get this targeted population -- mostly sufferers of bi-polar disorder and schizophrenia -- psychiatrically stable, compliant with their own treatment goals, and then to obtain stable housing or supportive living arrangements to facilitate remediation of the psychiatric symptoms and reduce recidivism.


  • Legal criteria: The client must be charged with a misdemeanor or felony, and cannot have a history of violent offenses. The client must be referred by the Mental Health Court.
  • Mental health criteria: Person must have schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder or major depressive disorder that is recurrent.
  • Defendants must be: Competent to stand trial, have the ability to understand and participate in treatment programs, and be willing to plead guilty to the charge.
  • Program length: Varies with individual client. Charges will be erased from defendant's record after they graduate.

Clients will be stepped down to a lower level of care as they progress through treatment.
